Our hearts are saddened to learn of the loss of Reuben. My sisters and I worked with Reuben at Heritage Models in the late 70's and early 80's, along with Rebecca, and Rafael and some of the others. We were always very fond of Reuben and the entire Aguilar family that we were blessed to know. Our prayers are with you all. Love, The Hudson Sisters ... Connie, Charlotte and Teresa

It has been so long since I last saw "Aggie" as we knew him in the band at North Dallas. Over those years I have thought often of his wonerful smile and sense of humor and it still brings a smile to my face. He was a sophmore when I was a senior and he was in the drum section with me. Simply stated, he was just one of those people that made you feel better just by knowing him.
My condolences to his family.

Dear Chris and Andrew, we wish there could be a much better way to express how saddened we are to know of your loss, and to let you know how much love is sent your way. And for all of Reuben's family, we very much want to express the wonderful memories we have of when we have shared in your family gatherings for many joyous occasions, and that we will miss seeing Reuben for all the occasions that will take place in the future. We have been blessed to be considered a member of the Aguilar family. With Love, Ray and Jan Harris, sister- and brother-in-law of Refugio, who we like to think of as our brother. Again to Chris and Andrew, let us know if there is anything we can do.
